Black Arts in Education


Event Description

Black Arts in Education - a celebration of black arts globally with artists creating work in schools locally.

A panel discussion Chaired by Carol Leeming MBE FRSA

It is fundamental that children should have access to the richness of arts as part of their learning. It is equally important that children should see themselves, their identities represented and reflected in the art they take inspiration from.

Yet the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted the lack of diversity across the arts sector and so, as part of Black History Month The City Classroom have invited Carol Leeming Carol Leeming multi-disciplinary artist in literature, performing & visual arts to host a conversation that celebrates Black Art and Artists working within Education locally and globally.

Join Carol and guest artists working across Theatre, Music, Dance Visual Arts and Literature as they share their practice and shine a light on the artists, they too take their inspiration from.

This event is aimed at teachers and those working with children and young people in primary and secondary education. It will provide teachers with opportunity to hear from and meet Black Artists making work with and for children and young people in schools.

Black History is British History, is World History we hope you can join the conversation with us.
